SIX RULES FROM THE WORLD OF INVESTORS

SIX RULES FROM THE WORLD OF INVESTORS

Every sector/organization has its governing principles that guide its success and anyone who wants to flourish in that organization must understand these working principles and abide by them. Failure to do so often attracts deadly consequences. Just ask doctors who have had their licenses revoked for accidents made in the course of duty. The same applies to the investment world. Many have lost thousands and millions of naira because they did not take the time to understand the working principles guiding investment. Today, Secure Capital shares with you six tested and proven nuggets that have worked over the years.

1. Know the difference between speculating and investing. What a lot of people call investing is gambling. According to Graham, “An investment operation is one which upon thorough analysis promises safety of principal and an adequate return. Operations not meeting these requirements are speculative.” So, before you invest in that get-rich-quick-scheme or the lottery game, ask yourself, is my principal guaranteed, and am I going to get an adequate return? (Benjamin Graham)

2. When buying stocks, take time to study the company’s portfolio. Check to know if they have consistently paid back dividends to their clients over the years. It is better to invest in a company that has this credibility even if the returns are low than to invest in a company that promises great returns but is not credible. (Warren Buffet).

3. Remember that investment is a business where you can look silly for a very long period of time before you are proven right. So, learn to be patient and be ready to invest for the long term (Bill Ackman and Philip Fisher).

4. Always tell yourself that investment is not about beating others at their game but rather about controlling yourself at your own game. This would help you control the urge to make impulsive decisions that can be deadly (Benjamin Graham).

5. When others are greedy, be fearful and when they are fearful, be greedy. (Warren Buffet).

6. Lastly, be very patient with winning trades, and be enormously impatient with losing trades (Dennis Gartman).
